Uniform Policy
The School Executive were asked to discuss the matter of proposed changes to uniform policy with teachers. Reporting back to Executive meeting indicated that a significant majority of teachers wanted the status quo. I asked for school community feedback and received 4 replies–all strongly opposed to change. Students were asked to vote online about two propositions. A disappointing 208 votes were received. Seniors were strongly opposed to the propositions–no ties terms 1 and 4 and sports uniform on sports days. Very few students in Years 7 and 8 voted. Overall, the proposals were not supported.

Given that the school appears to believe in its full uniform school policy, two changes need to happen. First, students need to take responsibility for wearing their uniform properly and with pride. Second, staff members need to enforce compliance with the dress code and employ appropriate sanctions when individuals repeatedly fail to comply. We will only get the standard of school dress that we are prepared to enforce.

Sir Roden Cutler Charities
Sir Roden Cutler Charities was established in 2003. We have been supporting the organisation for several years. It is the community service project for each Year 11 cohort. It has raised more than $1 million for people that no other charity can help.

In 2006 and 2007 High has been involved in the Wheel chair Roll, first from Manly PS to SBHS and last year from SBHS to Manly PS. Last year the Wheel chair Roll spent months travelling in country NSW. This year its theme is 'care for a carer'. People are being asked to nominate the one thing that would make a difference to a particular carer's life. Sir Roden Cutler Charities plans to expand its campaign to capital cities from March to May to promote its cause. A Carer of the Year Award will be announced by patron Ros Packer.

For 2008 the Wheel Chair Roll will commence at the SCG on Friday, May 23. Year 11 collectors will do two sessions: 07:30-09:00 and 12:00-14:00. They collect in groups at Circular Quay, Town Hall and St James Station, subject to permits being obtained.

Armed Services personnel from Victoria Barracks will again handle the money. Our collectors will be fed at the SCG BBQ area from 10:00 onwards. Activities are planned at the SCG before launching the Roll. Old Boy Ritchie Irvine will be our liaison person again this year. I urge Year 11 students to help raise money for Sir Roden Cutler Charities.

Other fundraising ideas are welcome. This is a worthwhile community service project. Support it.

The Sydney High School Old Boys Union
Since 1892, SHSOBU has been working as an important school community organisation. Its primary function is to promote and foster the interests of Sydney Boys High School. Its objectives include: strengthening the heritage and traditions of the school, promoting and maintaining friendship among Old Boys, making gifts of money to the school and engaging in fundraising, sporting and social activities.

Uniquely, SHSOBU is also part of our school governance structure. It has representation on the SBHS School Council and the SHSF Inc. Old Boys Union members are important contributors to School Life. It distributes e-bulletins, puts members in touch with one another via a database and publishes the High Bulletin. It has a membership base of 3000.

Life membership of the SHSOBU can be secured for 6 payments of $44. More about the SHSOBU can be read at www.sydneyboyshigh.com \ schoolfamily \ relationships or by clicking on the link to its website on that page. I commend the organisation to you.

Standing Committee of GPS Heads
Heads were concerned that ASADA would conduct drug testing at the National Rowing Championship and at any other state or national championships for youth, at their discretion. The Heads reaffirmed their position that ASADA would not be permitted to test at AAGPS fixtures. A letter is to be sent to GPS Old Boys encouraging them not to consume alcohol at school fixtures and not to sell alcohol at GPS fixtures.

This year's GPS music concert will not go ahead due to a lack of host school. Planning is under way to revive the concert for 2009.

Rugby mismatches again dominated discussion, particularly duty of care issues. The GPS/CAS amalgamation model version 3 was discussed. The brand image of the GPS was raised as was the historically varying strengths in rugby of various schools. The amalgamation model did not fully deal with mismatches beyond first and second grade level. Logistical difficulties of finding games where schools were mismatched in team numbers in Rugby and/or football were acknowledged.

The problem of the impact of importing one or two star players in basketball and tennis was raised. The names of such players need to be notified to the Convener of that sport. The Heads agreed that with the increasing use of outside coaches, guidelines about fair play and the GPS Code of Conduct need to be communicated widely to sports staff.

Year 11 Information Evening
Parents and students are invited to an overview of Preliminary English and HSC English course requirements on Tuesday 1st of April 6.30-7.30pm in the Great Hall. Information regarding programs of study together with assessment requirements will be provided for the Preliminary Advanced and Extension 1 courses. Additional information will be given about HSC English courses.

National Literacy Assessment Program
The purpose of the National Literacy Assessment Program is to assess the literacy learning of students in all Australian schools in Years 7 and 9.

The results of these tests will provide useful information for teachers and parents. In particular, they will help to inform teachers in their ongoing efforts to address the literacy needs of their students across all subjects.

There will be three sections in the Years 7 and 9 literacy tests. Language Conventions (Spelling, Grammar and Punctuation) and Writing will occur on Tuesday 13th May. Reading will occur on Wednesday 14th May.

Reading Torque
This week Mr Pearson takes us for a spin in a novel that promises a wild ride. If you are a lover of the unconventional, of black humour, of satire and of an ultra-hip style of writing that is colourful, contemporary, yet literary in its use of language, then you should check out the second novel by DBC Pierre (the Man Booker Prize winning author of Vernon God Little–also well worth reading).

Entitled Ludmila's Broken English it is the dual, yet convergent narratives of Ludmila Derev, a Russian web bride and the Heath twins, two English oddities, who are separated after thirty three years of being conjoined at the abdomen. What follows is an outrageously improbable picaresque tale that poignantly explores the gulf between East and West. So funny that it will have you laughing out loud, but with characters so compassionately drawn that it will have you marvelling at Pierre's ability to make the impossible completely believable. A novel that defies categorisation and that you will find very hard to put down.

SBHS: Foundation Years

The masters, continued
The exceptional nature of men who taught at Sydney High in Castlereagh Street is well illustrated by the careers of the men who held the position of "first-assistant master" - a position roughly the equivalent of today's deputy headmaster, however, with full teaching responsibilities. They were Messrs J W F MacManamey, A B Piddington, J G Legge and W J Crompton.

James Whiteside Frazer MacManamey
James MacManamey (1862-1915) was the first "first-assistant", appointed in 1883. A graduate of Sydney University in 1881, he took the highest form at Sydney High for chemistry against considerable handicaps, not least of which was that what little scientific apparatus there was had to be packed away in a small cupboard at the end of each lesson.

The school's first Rugby matches were played under his guidance and old boys recall that he was "able to get the best out of the scholars and the footballers under his control".

He left the School in 1885 for the private sector and later became a barrister and an interstate referee and President of the NSW Rugby Union. He was killed at Gallipoli in September 1915. The GPS Rugby premier shield is inscribed in his memory.

Albert Bathurst Piddington
Albert Piddington (1862-1945), who was on the staff from 1883, was elevated to the position of first-assistant on Mr MacManamey's departure in 1885. He was a classical and English scholar of great distinction and instilled a love of these subjects in his pupils.

His "graciousness on special occasions" was recalled by those old boys who were "fortunate enough to spend an evening with him in his rooms at St Paul's College, or to be his guests sailing around the Harbour in the "Old Index," a twenty-two foot open sailing boat well known in those days".

Indeed, he was probably the best-connected of the early masters. It is recorded that, at the public dinner to honour Professor Badham's 70th birthday, in 1883, he and three others, including the future Prime Minister of Australia, Edmund Barton (who, like Piddington, was a Sydney Grammar Old Boy), were the last to leave.

After a year's leave of absence overseas in 1887, he resigned at the end of 1888. He was called to the Bar in 1890, became Member for Tamworth in the NSW Parliament in 1895, and was a Royal Commissioner on several occasions. In 1913 he was appointed to the High Court of Australia but, before he sat on a case, he resigned amidst controversial circumstances. It was revealed that his appointment had followed swiftly upon a reply to a question from his brother-in-law about States' rights. The reply, which was cabled while he was returning to Australia from overseas, stated that he was "In sympathy with supremacy of Commonwealth powers". From 1913-1920 he was the Chief Commissioner of the Inter-State Commission, a now defunct body established under the Commonwealth Constitution. He became President of the Industrial Commission of NSW in 1927 and resigned in 1932 in protest at the sacking of Premier Jack Lang by the NSW Governor, Sir Philip Game.

Piddington maintained an interest in Sydney High for the whole of his life. His last appearance at the School was at the 1941 speech day when he shared the stage with the newly awarded VC, Roden Cutler. Piddington presented the literary prizes on that occasion and "revealed his ripe scholarship in an arresting speech packed with relevant quotations".

James Gordon Legge
James Legge (1863-1947) succeeded Mr Piddington as first-assistant in January 1889 at the age of only 26. He was, then, the oldest man to take up the position.

It was Legge who introduced the systematic teaching of physics at Sydney High. His methods were so successful that more than half the passes awarded in physics in the 1889 Junior Examination were awarded to Sydney High.

One old boy recalled of him:
Legge was a sound man; I think of him now as a little aloof.

Another old boy remembered him as a "tall, stately master".

He resigned in 1890 to pursue a career at the Bar, but continued teaching physics part-time until 1894.

His career in the law was short-lived, as he moved from part-time to full-time soldiering. He served in the Boer War, 1899-1902 and, later, as a Major General in World War I, he commanded Australian Divisions in Egypt, Gallipoli and France. He was Chief of the General Staff, 1914-1920 and then Commandant of the Royal Military College, Duntroon until his retirement in 1922.

Legge's resignation in 1890 left the way open for William Crompton to take the position of first assistant. Mr Crompton will be the subject of next week's article.

After speaking at a Year 8 parent meeting, Ms Gilmore has asked me to give some tips on getting our Year 8 students a little fitter.

Like any "seemingly" difficult task such as losing weight, saving money or getting fitter the motivation to succeed must come from within. The opportunities and obstacles to becoming fitter can be articulated and strategies offered to enhance the effort but ultimately it comes down to the individual to do it for themselves and not because someone else thinks it's important.

One of the best ways to improve fitness is to be involved with the school's sports program. Rugby, soccer and cross country in the winter, basketball and rowing in summer are excellent aerobic fitness activities. In addition they provide extra skill development opportunities as well as important social connections for students.

Another avenue to improve personal fitness is to undertake a strength training program with Jason Tassell at the school's Strength Training Room. As a person's Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR) can account for up to 70% of a person's daily energy expenditure, the benefits of improving body composition (muscle: fat ratio) are enormous.

If a person wishes to attempt a fitness program there are a few principles that should be considered. The FITT principles:

Frequency–Exercise should occur on a day on/day off basis to allow for recovery.

Intensity–Target heart rate zones are often used but the simple "talk test" would be appropriate. That is, if you can maintain a conversation whilst exercising then the intensity is seen as being satisfactory.

Time–The amount of time spent exercising. It may be as little as 10 minutes initially, trying to get to between 30 and 60 minutes in a session, using five minute increments.

Type–Type of exercise. Large muscle group activities such as walking (initially) → walk/jog → jogging → jog/run → running. Cycling and swimming also fit into this category.

Several strategies can be employed to help motivation.

  • Exercise with a partner. They are someone to talk to and encourage you when the going gets tough.
  • Keep a diary. Record your results. You will see your improvements in black and white.
  • Start off slowly and build up gradually. Too much too early can cause injury and be a big de-motivator.
  • Have a fitness specific goal in mind when you start and a specific time when you expect to achieve it.
  • Reward yourself when you achieve your goal.

The gains made will be jealously protected as the sense of well being you receive will be the source of future motivation.

Your son's PDHPE teacher is able to give your son further advice about starting a fitness program.

Athletics Carnival 2008

Over two glorious days last week the School Athletics Carnival was held at nearby ES Marks field. The Carnival is designed to cater for all standards and boys are encouraged to participate in at least three events on the day. The Carnival went very smoothly thanks to the efforts of staff, student volunteers and willing competitors. Particular thanks once again to our Data Team consisting of James Rudd and student helpers who donated their skill and computer expertise over two days. Our Carnival is now one of only a few large school Carnivals held at the track and it continues to be a great spectacle when it is in full swing.

School records are rarely set at this early stage of the season, but Chris Morrow's 15.20s in the 15 Years 100m Hurdles is a new record in this very technical event and Kogulan Sriranjan equalled the 200m record of T McDonald from 1974 in 17 Years. Congratulations also to the Age Champions–Dominic Mah (12 Years), Patrick Krakovsky (13 Years), Prashan Prabaharan (14 Years), Christopher Morrow (15 Years) and Maximillian Kite (16 Years).

Special Awards from the Carnival include:

The AM Eedy Cup for 100m Champion: Kogulan Sriranjan

The McArthur Memorial Cup for 1500m: Ronan Casey

The Frank Albert Cup for Senior Athletics Champion: Michael Denny-Smith

Full results of the Carnival are available on the school's website.

Eedy was the winning House this year.

On the 5th April SBHS Athletics is hosting an Invitational Carnival at Homebush. We need at least 15 parents to help out as officials on the day. Please contact me on 0403829344 or by email at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it if you can help.

Please check the athletics results and the school athletics records for errors.

MIC Athletics

Zone Selection Criteria–Please read carefully
The top two athletes from each event will be selected to represent the school at a zone level. The third placed athlete will be on the team as a reserve. Students wishing to represent at the zone carnival in an event not held at the school carnival must submit a time/distance to the Master in Charge of Athletics for selection. Students may compete in all events selected, but in the event of a full schedule, students may choose to withdraw from some events in order to concentrate on stronger events. In this case, the reserve would take the spot and the fourth place getter at the school carnival would become the reserve. If you do not wish to compete at the Zone Carnival you must let Mr Devlin know immediately.

SBHS Cricket

All team's category winners which will be posted on the Cricket website on Saturday 29th MARCH 2008, must be attending the Dinner and Presentation on Friday 4th APRIL to receive their Awards as included in the evening's programme. This will allow any last minute bookings to be paid for at the school office before the closing time of 12 noon on Monday 31st MARCH 2008. SCHOOL UNIFORM is to be worn for the Cricket Dinner.

The Cricket Dinner and Presentation of Awards is on next Friday 4th APRIL commencing at 6-30pm (Sharp). Parents and players are advised that due to our increased number of teams, we now have to start with the initial Cricket Awards at 6-40 pm immediately after the welcome address and prior to Dinner which is scheduled for 7-0pm. Please note this late change to timings.

During December 2007 High hosted 50 boys from four Australian States during the 5 Highs Carnival and our parents billeted all for the 5 day period of the Carnival which was a tremendous effort. Unfortunately some of our cricketers did not take billets for varying reasons and several families doubled and trebled the number of boys they took. So that I do not overlook any individual family can I say on behalf of the Cricket Sub-Committee our sincere thanks for your goodwill, your transportation of players and billets and your support during the Carnival.

To Mrs Pauline McPherson who purchased, collected and then made sandwiches with Mrs Barbara Taylor who over the 5 day period made up 180 rounds of sandwiches (2 rounds per player) each morning and then, believe it or not, speared off to their work when they had finished. Add to that the great assistance we got from Karen and Tracey in the School Canteen, not forgetting Mrs. Christina Chow's support, saw unbelievable effort by so few catering for an army of hungry young men and my sincere appreciation is extended to each of the ladies.

To our team coaches ,scoring parents, and de-facto team managers who put their hands up each week in carrying kits in their vehicles and at the grounds, scoring and umpiring for our teams regularly, I can only say on behalf of all of our cricketers who had your support, a very big thanks and well done to all.

Pre-season squads, specialty wicket keepers sessions encompassing all age groups, captains training and forums, Barberis Cup, Under 15 Development teams tour and Australian 5 Highs Carnival are but a few of what has been put into the 2008-2009 season planning. The programme will be released on the Cricket Website this coming weekend for the information of players and supporters and parents.

The President Dr Andrew Bowes will be retiring from the Presidency and is not seeking re-election at the AGM in August 2008 and of course the cricket committee is an integral part of our operation. My personal thanks to Andrew who relieved me of several tasks to allow me to concentrate in the development area of our section and his assistance was invaluable. To the remaining members of the committee my thanks on behalf of all players for your attendances and input throughout the season.

The AGM will be held at 6-0pm on WEDNESDAY 13th AUGUST in the Common Room in the Main Administration Building. All are welcome and we invite parents to consider assisting our young cricketers by taking a role with the committee. The commitment is for the AGM and 4 committee meetings over the 2 terms. Please put this date in your diary and consider being a member of the guiding team for High Cricket

Rowing News

The Following is the speech by the Captain of Boats at the Rowing Assembly.

Dr Jaggar, Mr Barris, Fin Murray, students, parents and supporters. I would like to welcome you to the Rowing Assembly. To many of us Rowing is more than just the sport we participate in. It is also a place to hang out with your mates, A place where all the pressures of life seem to be further away and you can just relax and enjoy the experience.

I would like to take a moment to thank all those who help run the rowing program, all those who allow us to enjoy this wonderful sport. Firstly to all the coaches, old boys and teachers alike, who willingly go out in all conditions and at all times to help us master the art of rowing, to all the parents who help, with parking, the barbeque, running camps, transporting us and just generally supporting our passion. I would like to especially thank our Boatman Mr Daish, without whom there is no way the sheds would function, Mr Wilson who drives out the boat trailer, Chris Watson and Serdar Bolen who drive our bus, Mr Littlewood and Mr Creer who are essential in maintaining the boatshed, the parents of the rowing committee, Mrs Blomberg, Mr Andrews and Mrs Desmond who organises food for our camps and Mrs Deacon who is our parking coordinator, Grace Reid our secretary. Last of all I would like to thank the MIC for rowing Mr Barris, whose hard work and dedication seem to know no bounds, a man who sacrifices his own time for our happiness.

Many a Rower has been asked these questions: "why do you do it, why do you put yourself through all those early mornings, pain and training". The answer is always this "because it is the sport I love." To quote Sir Theodore Cook "The rattle of the riggers of the finish, the music of the tide beneath her body as she shot between the strokes, the grim yet heartening sound of splendid and unbroken strength when all eight blades crashed in together - these are the things that no one who has heard and felt them will ever forget. Some delirium. Some tremens. Some kaleidoscope." Being in a boat is a truly special feeling and one that is hard to convey to people who haven't experienced it, when everything is going right there is no place I would rather be in the world than in a boat, flying down the river.

The senior boatshed has been eagerly awaiting HOTR since the start of the season, it is the chance for us to show what we have accomplished this year, to test ourselves against both strong competition and ourselves, in a truly amazing atmosphere. I remember the goose bumps I got before my first HOTR and that electric feeling that comes as you pass through the 1500m mark as a 15000 strong crowd roars at you, driving you to the line. It is at this point I would like to thank all those who make this moment possible, you the school body who give up your time to come out and support us. It is something I and the other rowers appreciate immensely, and I would like to personally thank all those coming out tomorrow, your support means a lot to us and really helps through those last painful metres of the race.

For the Year 10 eight rowers this year is their first HOTR and the start of an experience they won't forget

The 2nd Yr 10 8 has been under the tutelage of old boy coaches Robbie Girdler and Liam Bennet

The first Year 10 eight has been guided by Mr Barris

The B or fours group are approaching HOTR with vigour and enthusiasm. For me it is the fours who epitomise what is great about rowing. The fours have worked incredibly hard this season, they hurt themselves just as much as anyone else down the 2000m course, doing it all the while without the benefit of being in an the extra crew of an eight who share the load with you.

The 3rd Four coached by Tim Glass

The 2nd Four coached by James Mckay and Tom Hurrell

The 1st Four coached by James Gerofi

The senior A groups has been working towards HOTR for 10 months, 10 months for one day, 10 months for 6 minutes. Sculling sessions started way back in term 2 last year and since then the rowers have put in a gruelling training regime, vigorous selections have ensured the crews we put out will be the very best we have to offer. "Let's plunge ourselves into the roar of time, the whirl of accident, may pain and pleasure, success and failure, shift as they will, its only action that can make a man."

The 2nd eight coached by George Barris, George always brings a great deal of enthusiasm to his sessions. George is always smiling, but this belays a tough man who always gets the most out of his crews. He has moulded together a very tough 2nd 8 crew.

One person I would like to single out from the 2nd 8 is Robert Chen, the sole Yr 12 in the crew Rob has dealt admirably with a harsh selection process and has become a real leader amongst the 2nd 8 and the whole boatshed. A guy I am truly proud to have rowed with.

The first eight this year has been coached by Oliver Wilson. Olly is more than just a coach, he also a great mate to all the rowers and a true friend. "All the outstanding coaches were building winning individuals for the great competition of life." This aptly sums up Oliver Wilson he has been a mentor to many of us and a man who has earned our greatest respect. I would like to introduce the first 8 for 2007/08

B Shahar Merom: A tireless worker within the crew, Shahar's work ethic and dedication have been something to behold, whether its in the gym or on the water, Shahar always pushes himself to the brink, often with disastrous consequences to himself but allowing him to make great improvements to his rowing, becoming one of the most technically adept rowers in the boat.

2 Chris Andrews: Chris has worked incredibly hard to make the eight this year, making a big jump from rowing in the 2nd 4 last year. Chris efforts show just what can be accomplished with lots of hard work, and his efforts are respected greatly in the sheds.

3 David Vien: David Vien, our school captain, is a great leader within the crew, on top of this David is in a tough sport, the toughest guy in the crew, rowing on a injured shoulder all year, requiring painkilling injections for HOTR has not stopped Dave. His drive and determination is inspiring to those around him.

4 Brynley Pfull: As well as being a great rower, Brynley is also a great individual and a real down to earth guy, if I were to go to a junior boy and point out someone who would be a great role model for them to follow, it would be Brynley.

5 Harry Reid: Harry has worked hard this year and has become an exceptional rower. Harry is also a great guy off the water, and another person I would not hesitate to offer as a role model to younger boys.

7 Nelson Ridges: Nelson came back from a back injury that sidelined him for most of the pre season, to make the crew with style. An aggressive oarsman, Nelson will be a vital part of the crew helping drive it down the 2000m course.

S Mitchell Kelly: The biggest and strongest guy in the sheds. Mitch is the guy who will be hammering it out of the blocks, Mitch is the guy who will be lifting the crew with 500m to go. An amazing athlete Mitch is a vital cog to this boat

Cox Patrick Desmond: Back for his 2nd year in the eight and with one more to still to go, Patty is a great coxswain and inspiring figure to hear as we drive through the pain.

And with myself in the 6 seat I give you the first 8 for 2007/08
Daniel O'Keefe, Captain of Boats 2008

From the Rowing Committee President
The GPS Head of the River Regatta was held last Wednesday at Penrith SIRC with Years 7 and 8, many senior boys, families and Old Boys on the bank supporting the High crews. It was good to see all crews row well and many achieve PBs in terrific conditions. Congratulations to all those boys who represented High at this prestigious event.

Following the regatta it was back to the sheds for the informal presentation of thank yous to staff, coaches, volunteers, Old Boys and parents who enthusiastically dedicate time and effort to a sport and school they feel passionate about. Mr Barris gave a warm and meaningful address to the boys, particularly Year 12, based on what they have got out of rowing and what rowing has done for them. By the time the traditional cake was cut everyone felt a winner! I'm sure everybody left those sheds feeling good about the season, if not relieved it was all over for awhile!
Reflecting on the season, I would like to thank

  • the wonderful committee–Grace Reid, Anita Bezjak, Bernie Desmond, Katharine Deacon, Peter Ambrose and Geoff Andrews, a core group of committed parents who organized weekly barbeques, parking at the school, regattas and events, catering for the many weekly camps and much more.
  • the many parents who volunteered for cooking and overnight camp duties, weekly barbeque cooking, cleaning of the sheds and helping at our regatta and dinner.
  • The coaches and 'behind the scenes' team of mainly old boy volunteers who keep High Rowing going.
  • Mr Barris, MIC, who oversees all operations at the sheds. He backs up year after year ensuring the boys are getting the most out of rowing that they are not only performing at their full potential but they are enjoying their time associated with the sheds.

Congratulations to all associated with High Rowing during 07/08 and making it a successful season.
Julie Blomberg
President - Rowing Committee

Dorothea Mackellar Poetry Awards

Primary and secondary students across Australia are being urged to go outdoors to find inspiration for the 2008 Dorothea Mackellar Poetry Awards.

"Forests, Feathers, Fins and Fur" is this year's theme for country's largest poetry writing competition for students, which celebrates the work of well-known Australian poet Dorothea Mackellar.

Supported by the Australian Government, the poetry awards, now in their 28th year, are an activity associated with National Literacy and Numeracy Week (NLNW).

"The Dorothea Mackellar Poetry Awards is a valued National Literacy and Numeracy Week event. It helps students discover a passion for poetry, while ensuring our children develop effective literacy skills," said Deputy Prime Minister and Education Minister, the Hon Julia Gillard.

"These important awards provide a unique voice for our youth. I encourage all schools to participate and write about our precious environment." Last year, more than 15,000 poems were written by students from nearly 1000 schools nationally.

Students and schools can share in more than $5000 worth of prizes including cash, trophies, books and a trip to Gunnedah in north-west NSW–home of the awards and where Dorothea Mackellar's family owned several properties.

This year, the poetry awards take on an environmental theme with the Namoi Catchment Management Authority (CMA) also throwing its support behind the event.

"It's hoped the environmental theme will encourage students to research biodiversity by studying their local environments and help them to learn about the diversity of native plants and animals," said General Manager Namoi CMA Bruce Brown.

"This event gives students the chance to express their thoughts and concerns about the environment in a creative manner."

Entries in the Dorothea Mackellar Poetry Awards close 2 June 2008. Authors Sue Gough and Prue Mason are the judges, and winners will be notified during NLNW (1-7 September).

A National Presentation Ceremony will be held in Gunnedah on 5 September 2008.

Award entry forms and information on poetry writing, resource notes for teachers and judges' reports are available at www.dorothea.com.au

The major supporter of the Dorothea Mackellar Poetry Awards is the Australian Government Department of Education, Science and Training. Other supporters include Gunnedah Shire Council, Namoi Catchment Management Authority, BHP Billiton Caroona Coal Project and QantasLink.

New Library & Performing Arts Centre

Tax Deductible 125th Anniversary Project

Sydney Boys High School depends upon its community of parents, Old Boys and supporters to further the School's ethos of the pursuit of all-round excellence.

We have a bold vision for a two stage Library & Performing Arts Centre. With advances in information technology, there is a pressing need to create a facility which is able to adapt and keep pace with meeting the increasing needs of our students. The estimated cost of the combined project is $4m. Stage one requires $1.8m; we have $400k. A new tax deductible monthly giving program has been introduced to help fund our development goal.

We have implemented an arrangement with ANZ Bank for automatic monthly deductions from a nominated credit card. You can elect to give $50, $40, $30 or $20 each month for a period of twelve months. Your nominated amount, along with your name and credit card details will be sent to the bank electronically. At the end of the financial year, the school will issue an annual statement as evidence of tax deductible donations. You can opt in or out of the scheme provided you notify the school in writing five working days before the fifteenth day of each month.

Thank you for helping to make a difference for our boys
